WOW!!!!  I have been nominated the Sunshine Blogger Award, once again.  Thank you so much Sadje, from Keep It alive.  I am very honored.   I am very happy to see that so many people are enjoying my blog, A Jeanne in the Kitchen, found at ajeanneinthekitchen.com.

Sunshine Blogger Award

Who is you favorite Music Artist and name three things you like about them?

This is a really hard question for me to answer because I have such a wide range of music that I love and listen to.  It really kind of depends on my mood at the time.  I love all kinds of music, as long as it is GOOD music.

How old were you when you do you first Creative Writing or Graphic Design (Drawing)?

I have been writing all my life in some way or another.  One of my degrees is a BA in English Literature.

Why and How Long have you been on WordPress Blogging?

I started my blog, A Jeanne in the Kitchen in March of 2018.  So I have only been blogging for a few months.

What is your favorite Holiday, if any to Celebrate and Why?

My favorite holiday is Thanksgiving.  It is about getting together with loved ones and appreciating and being thankful for what you already have.

If you were on the dance floor. What’s your best dance move?

I love to dance, but do not dance much anymore.  I grew up with the fun music of the 80’s, so all those dance moves that were popular then were what I did my best to dance to while out on the dance floor.

What inspires you to write?

I think writing is just something I need to do.  It comes from deep within.  I have a need to express myself in whatever creative outlet I can, and writing is just one of many forms of my creativity.

Do you find it challenging to write through adversity?

No, in fact it is the opposite.  Writing, particularly through adversity, is kind of my cathartic release.

If were offered an opportunity to live in a different country and write for a year. What place would you choose and why?

The gypsy in me would love this opportunity.  Australia would make the most sense, since I have so many family and friends there, but I would make the most of the opportunity no matter where I was.  I would look at it as an adventure, and I love adventures of all kinds.

What is you favorite color?

I actually have 3 favorite colors – green, blue and purple.  They are the colors of the ocean and I have always had a deep love for and connection to the oceans of the world.

Do you still enjoy using handwriting your work?

Always.  I am a tactical learner.  Writing things out helps me think.

When is your favorite time to of day or night to create your work?

Because of the way my schedule is, I usually do most of my writing during the day, in the early morning, but my creative muse strikes at all hours, and when she appears, I have to follow her lead, whenever that time happens to be.


There are so many deserving bloggers out there, but I had to narrow it down to only 11.  In my book, we are all winners.  Good luck to everyone. My nominees for this award are:

My questions to all of you are the same questions that were asked to me by Sadje.  They are good questions.
